What was LEEP like for you?

I have been reading through pages and pages of posts and like many people on here I'm experiencing the same stress and anxiety between appointments. I got an abnormal pap 4 months ago that camp back hpv. I got on colp done a month ago and it came back mild to moderate dysplasia. She did a biopsy on 2 spots. The day I had the colp was terrible. I was never told to take ibuprofen before the app so it was really painful waiting for it to kick in after. Anyway, I'm getting leep in a week and cannot stop thinking about it. I'm asking for you to share your leep experience.

Re: What was LEEP like for you?

they gave me 1 xanax to take when i got to the office, honestly it takes 1 hour for xanax to even take effect so knowing in advance i took my anxiety medication.

i go in and the worst part of the entire procedure was the injection of numbing medication. HOLY ... PAIN. be prepared for that. once you get past that, the worst is over.

the smell was absolutely horrible. its the worst smell i've ever had to sit through my entire life.

you're not going to feel a thing until about an hour to two hours after the procedure. i'd talk to you primary care doctor to see if they can give you a pain medication like tramadol. (i had some left over from an accident i had) basic anti inflammatory/pain medication will work as well.

the next day you will feel 100% better.

Does the Xanax just calm you down?

Re: What was LEEP like for you?

The Xanax will make you feel like you're slightly drunk. Tipsy maybe. It works by slowing down the movement of chemicals in the brain causing and imbalance and reduction in nerves and anxiety.

In all reality the Xanax is a stress reliever.
